The Crocosmia is looking glorious agains the blue sky.



I found this creature on the  Passionflower plant and liked how its antennae echo the curly tendrils of the plant.

Need to find out what this is

We haven’t been to sit in the back since the children left and discovered Littlest Live-wire’s yellow duck in the dove cote!

    I think that’s a kind of Ichneumon Wasp – Habrocampulum biguttatum I am guessing.
    Strange creatures aren’t they?!
